6) These PrayerCast Guys Have Done it Again: “Resource Partners”

Would we not want to show this video to all support-raisers, to help them get their head on straight? Would we not want all our current missionaries to see this, so they can understand their relationship to donors? And wouldn’t we want to show this in every church in the country, so our Christian brothers WITH resources would understand their strategic role in the Great Commission??? https://www.prayercast.com/resource-partners.html Thank you PrayerCast!

7) Wow – This GACX Event Looks Amazing

7) Wow – This GACX Event Looks Amazing

Check it out, online, Sept. 15-16. https://forum.gacx.io/ But frankly, I’m not sure you can appreciate the whole picture from this registration page. This entire program is going to run in 6 languages. They have national facilitators coming from 40 countries. How is this possible? It will truly be a global gathering of Kingdom-Collaborators to multiply disciples and churches. Well done, GACX.
